When I grew up in the south end of Louisville (in the 50s) 40-11 was an
indeterminate number, but enough to note, a worthy amount. I haven't heard it
since leaving Louisville in my rearview mirror. I have since spent time in
NC, NY, WI, MI and a couple of other places, but they didn't have 40-11.
Kind of like _umpteen_ but not as much as _a zillion_?
